Stream Proposals Due January 10th 2022

We warmly invite stream proposals for London Conference in Critical Thought 2022. The conference is a space for those who share theoretical approaches and interests, but who frequently find themselves at the margins of their department or discipline. LCCT is an inter-institutional and non-hierarchical event which makes a particular effort to embrace emergent thought and foster new avenues for critically orientated scholarship and collaboration.

There is no pre-determined theme for the conference. Instead, the conference is comprised of a number of thematic streams. Stream proposals form the basis of our Call for Presentations, and as such, are at the heart of the academic tone and content of each year’s conference. Therefore, stream proposals should not take the form of pre-formed collections of panels. We welcome submissions that seek to stimulate a range of cross-disciplinary responses, including but not necessarily limited to traditional academic papers. We encourage proposals that attract critical thought inclusively, drawing in topics and groups that are historically underrepresented in the academy.

Our definition of critical thought is not prescriptive. Past programmes and example stream outlines can be found on our website: http://londoncritical.org/archive

Stream organisers are integral to the working of the conference; those whose proposals are accepted will be expected to take an active role as stream coordinators working in the LCCT organising collective. Further guidance, including what it means to be a stream organiser, how streams and papers are selected, examples of successful proposals, and more information on the ethos and organising structure of LCCT can be found on our website.

In a change from previous years, LCCT 2022 will take place online (day one) as well as in person (days two and three). Stream organisers should indicate if their stream is proposed to take place online or in person. The deadline for Stream Proposals is Monday 10th January 2022. Proposals should not exceed 500 words and should be sent to: stream-subs@londoncritical.org
